High impact information on Fallopian Tubes

  • Pain during tubal sterilisation is thought to be due to either ischaemia or pressure at the site of impact of sterilising devices on the fallopian tubes [6].
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of CT-2103, a novel conjugate of paclitaxel and poly-L-glutamic acid, in heavily pretreated patients with recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer [7].
  • PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to determine the incidence of BRCA mutations among Ashkenazi Jewish patients with fallopian tube carcinoma (FTC) or primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPC), to study the clinicopathologic features of these cancers, and to estimate the risks of these cancers in association with a BRCA mutation [8].
  • We detected a high level of the TSC403 transcript in primary cancers of the esophagus, colon, fallopian tube, ovary, breast, and liver, although expression of this gene was barely detectable in corresponding normal tissues [9].
  • In positive endocervix, endometrium, and fallopian tube specimens, HD-5 was located in apically oriented granules and on the apical surface of a proportion of columnar epithelial cells [10].
